Matthew 6: 32-34

32 (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things.
33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.
34 Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.

Do you really believe that God is able and eager to meet all of your needs?

Some people ask, “If God is all powerful and all knowing, and if He loves me unconditionally– and therefore He is not only capable of meeting all my needs but also desires to meet all my needs– then why doesn’t He just meet all my needs right now?

Why do I still have unmet needs?

Others say, ” I know God is capable  of meeting my needs, but since I still have them, God must not want to meet them.”

Still others question sincerely, “Why didn’t God meet all my needs the moment I accepted Jesus Christ as my savior?”

These are excellent questions worthy of close examination.

At the onset, let me assure you that God is committed to meeting all of your needs. Jesus told us  in Matthew 6 that we are not to worry about getting our needs met, for God has promised to take of them.

“but seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness.”

He said, “and all these things shall be added to you” (Matthew 6:33). He had in mind “things” like food and drink and clothes. This is a promise, a commitment, a pledge of action.

The value of any commitment is based upon two things:

1-The ability of the promise maker to fulfill the promise.

2- The integrity of the promise maker, whether he has the character to follow through on the promise.

God certainly qualifies on both accounts.

He has all the wisdom, power and ability necessary to fulfill His promises to us. He also has proven integrity– He has always done what He dais He would do. God is utterly faithful to His word.

He is holy and immutable; He is unchanging. His commandments, statutes, and promises have not changed; they reflect our unchanging God.

He is in fact the same yesterday, today and tomorrow.

Do you want your needs met?

Tell God today that you completely trust Him and that you understand that your timing is not His timing. Continue to obey God and you can expect that He will deliver on His promises.
